Benefits/Value

10 ways to maximize your membership investment

Attend special events designed for new members
Two events have been developed to familiarize new members with the benefits of Chamber membership and help them connect with each other. Attend CHAMBER 101 to learn how to get the most out of your membership. Exchange information about your company with other new members at a NEW MEMBER BUSINESS EXCHANGE.

Provide a discount or coupon
Offer a discount and publicize your products and services to other Chamber members on the Chamber website. Upload your coupon or discount information on the Member Login section of the website. Your online coupon includes a hotlink to your website and can also be viewed by non-members in the online Membership Directory.

Benefit from business referrals and leads
